Light 2000-2010 Three years ago we were commissioned by a private client to build a collection that would tell the story of design in the early 21st century, and could eventually become part of a museum. After some discussion, we decided to focus on light. New technologies and the challenges of sustainability as well as resurging interest in the poetics of light contribute to lighting design attracting an extraordinary surge of creativity at the dawn of the new millennium. The collection includes work by some 30 emerging and established designers and ranges from mass-production designs to unique commissions, and also includes contextual material and film.
